    Default Bush hog - sheared off castle nut

    I have an older Bush Hog brand bush hog... Razorback RZ60.
    I broke off the threaded head that holds the stump jumper on.
    Today I ordered the shaft/gearbox combo. The Bush Hog parts were $300... the after-market version was $200. I went with the after-market.
    Any thoughts?
    and
    Is this job pretty straight forward... remove old gearbox and put new one on?

    You will be ok as long as you ordered the correct input and output shaft. Input could be 1 3/8 inch round smooth for 1/2 inch shear pin or 1 3/8 inch with 6 splines for clutch. The output shaft can be either 12 or 15 splines. Ken Sweet

    Thanks for the quick response Sweet.
    I'm pretty sure I'm only getting the new shaft that drops down from the gearbox that the stump jumper connects to. I assume the shaft TO the gear box from the PTO is ok.

    Hope your parts turn out to be correct ones.
    When you get up and rolling with that hog maybe you'd like to share a story or two on this link.

    I'm saving my "I ran over all the springs from a decomposed box spring mattress" for that posting. Matter of fact, I thought I put that on there but I don't see it there now.
    Lots of springs I can tell you.
    Hope the guy that dragged down to the pond edge had more fun on it that I did.

    Oh, and I'll eventually be able to add that I ran over a sheared off castle nut! My Dang Hog is like a metal detector.

    Most likely you're getting a complete gear box. Friend just bought a 100 hp 15 spline for his mower for about $200.
